  • Tractor Supply Company in Cynthiana invites parents to unlock the hidden potential of their backyard with a family garden.
    To introduce children to the joy of growing food in their backyard, Tractor Supply is hosting Get Growing, a five-day gardening event May 11-15. During the main event on Saturday, May 14, the store will feature a “first seed” station for children to plant a seed, take it home and watch it grow.
    The Get Growing event will also feature community groups and activities, including cookout and pet adoption:

  • The most common form of plant propagation is digging and dividing, which is best done in early spring before new growth or in the fall before plants go dormant.
    Digging and dividing is great for herbaceous plants but those plants that are considered woody ornamentals do not divide as easily with a spade. In this case we can look to the technique of rooting out softwood cuttings from the mother plant.
    Greenhouses have stock plants that they maintain from year to year to provide the cuttings for each year’s new generation.
